Lost In Dance Music

Lose Yourself To Dance – Daft Punk feat Pharrell & Nile Rodgers -single

The current  holy trinity of dance music return with the second best single from Random Access Memories.  If spring/early summer was all about Get Lucky, then late summer/autumn will be all about Lose Yourself To Dance!

Those expecting Get Lucky Part 2 are in for a pleasant surprise, as this time around they have  gone for a downtempo groove with obligatory handclaps. I  can visualise clubbers doing the bustop or the bump to. Below is an excellent, Soul Train video on Youtube which highlights my point.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nile Rodgers’s guitar work is funktastic; Pharrell highlights this with a number of “Guitar” ad libs. A joyous ode to just letting loose on the dancefloor, with the robots encouraging everyone to CMon CMon CMon, with the mega sales of Random Access Memories it is unlikely that Lose Yourself To Dance will have the same impact as Get Lucky but I for one intend to get lost in this dance music!

Timberlake’s Tunnel

We have had the comeback single which divided his fans, Suit & Tie, we had the the big Number1 single, Mirrors, which more or less united the fans and now we have the third single, Tunnel Vision, which will titillate the fans or at least the video will.

Tunnel Vision, whilst not a bad track itself, leaves me with a feeling of haven’t we heard this all before but done better with Aaliyah and is Justin Timberlake hoping that a little controversy will sell the third single from The 20/20 Experience? That being said,Timberlakes video is not as crude as Robin Thicke‘s unrated Blurred Lines video.

The production is everything you would expect from anything associated with Timbaland, however, I can’t help feeling that Justin’s vocals should be higher in the mix and how many times can Timbaland yelp freaky freaky freaky girl before it becomes passe?

Tunnel Vision will serve to keep the sales of The 20/20 Experience ticking over and help to promote the upcoming festivals that Justin will be playing.
